Shahngali (Bengali D’Albret X Affecshahn (Derbist)) could scarcely have been more impressive, producing a confident and bold display on his seasonal debut. Always prominent and in the leading group, he cut out a break neck pace with subsequent third Baraka Sharlap and showed an impressive turn of foot to get up in the shadow of the post to repel the late thrust of Kaspa. The second Kaspa (Kasadi X Pharitz Maneon (Galeon)) was held up mid field and came with a wet sail in the final furlong and a half to catch Shahngali, he briefly headed the winner in the final half furlong only to lose the initiative in the dieing strides going down by a neck. Last time these two met was at this course over five furlongs last season and it was Kaspa who got up by a neck, he has shown improved form considering he is rated 18 lb inferior to the winner and both are clearly on the upgrade. Baraka Sharlap (ZT Shahkar X Al Tamah)) was a decent third four lengths behind, he cut out a decent pace but couldn’t live with the first two inside the final furlong. Cal Karamah (Karmah X Mora Amapola) was a decent fourth half-a-length away.
